400 Country Club Terrace, Lawrence, KS.

Her subject is “Gluten – The Silent Enemy,” understanding the association between inflammation, autoimmune diseases and gluten sensitivity! If you are in the area and you know someone or you are someone who needs to hear Dr. Baucom speak on this subject, don’t miss this opportunity. “Dr. B.” has been given standing ovations for her presentations and on this subject, specifically. 

Dr. Baucom received her medical degree from The University of Missouri at Kansas City.  In fact she, along with her twin sister, is the first African American to graduate from UMKC medical school. She has practiced obstetrics and gynecology for over 35 years.  She served as Assistant Professor at both UMKC Truman Center and Kansas University Medical Center.  She now is in private practice in Overland Park, Kansas, and is the founder of the Baucom Institute for Longevity & Life Enhancement.  She has recently become a Fellow of Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine. Her specialty is hormone and nutritional counseling as it relates to anti-aging and the prevention of disease.


The following topics will be presented:

  • What is gluten and how has our wheat changed over the years?
  • Why consuming too many grains can be harmful?
  • What is Celiac disease and what are the symptoms?
  • Where does inflammation target your body?
  • How can you safely and effectively reduce inflammation with whole food supplementation?

It’s been said that no one, even if you haven’t been tested for sensitivity, should have gluten in their diet. Do you have a gluten intolerance? If you aren’t sure, Dr. Baucom’s presentation will be educational and eye opening. Make plans in your schedule for this. You’ll be grateful to have this information!
